Subject RE: Windows and Linux hadoop cluster
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 12:29:56 GMT
Security:
Windows doesn’t have a working OpenSSL implementation
Malware, Virus and other typical windows based threads
Disk level permission or encryption 

Performance:
Different thread handling per OS
Yarn implementation differs, can cause negative performance 
Windows CPU / Core scaling isn’t the same as Linux 

I would not go with a mixed environment in production, and I see no sense behind. Stable solutions
are often use CentOS, since the TCO is much smaller than in Windows environments. If you’re
a Windows shop, go with Azure.

Cheers,
